What are the benefits of Pyramid-shaped Tea bags?
Our Pyramid-shaped Nylon Tea bags make for a large, sturdy tea bags which doesn't tear up easily and brews a large cup. The pyramid shape allows more room for the tea leaves to unfurl, offering a rich and flavorful cup of tea, as against low-grade tea dust used by many orthodox brands. Our tea bags are heat-sealed and high-density enveloped.
What are your Tea pouches made of?
Our Tea pouches are made of high-grade Nylon mesh. These bags are heat-sealed and high-density enveloped.
How do I know the water temperature is right?
While temperature is easy to determine if you have a thermometer, how can you tell without one? The easiest trick is the boil-and-wait method below. Keep in mind these are just guidelines and not a guarantee! Hot water (75℃ - 80℃): Let the boiled water sit for about 5 minutes before use. Near-boiling (90℃ - 95℃): Let boiled water sit for about 1 minute before use.
How are the Teas packaged?
After sourcing our teas directly from plantations within hours of harvest, we bring them to our state-of-the-art tea facility in New Delhi, India. The teas then go through rigorous rounds of cleaning, sorting, quality testing to remove any impurities/dust/foreign particles. Teas then pass through a final 10+ quality checkpoints for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. They are then vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminum-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperature-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Upon receiving a consumer's order, we further pack the required quantity of tea in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centers located in various parts of the world.
Is there an expiration date on products?/What is the shelf life of products?

The packaging for the product is safe and it comes in the tea sachets that keep the leaves extra fresh and aromatic as soon as you open the bag. And the taste is everything I hoped it would be. My delivery also came on time.
This tea is authentic and delicious, I drink it every morning and will continue to do so until I run out and need to order more. Never going back to my old chai!
This is great tea
This tea has a smooth taste with very little tannins and balanced well with cardamon.
I had been trading emails on a different order with the folks at Vahdam, and mentioned that I LOVED cardamom tea and was buying it here at Amazon.com from a different company. I was told that Vahdam has both loose-leaf and bagged cardamom tea, so I decided to try the bag tea, thinking I'd replace my previous brand if this one is good. Bag tea is super easy to travel with, and can be brewed up individually in a few minutes. Well, I brewed up a few cups of it today and it is SUPERB!!! Even my husband (who's from India) says it tastes refreshingly authentic. We both prefer our 'chai' with just cardamom - NO cloves, cinnamon, black pepper, sugar or other yada yada ingredients that pollute the 'chai' one typically finds for sale. This is the genuine article. Each bag is not only foil-wrapped, but the bag itself is in a silky, triangular-shaped bag that promotes the infusion way better than any kind of bleached or unbleached teabag wrapper. I can say that going forward Vahdam Cardamom Chai Tea will be my go-to brand. I love to travel with these bags and brew them up on the road. It's pure comfort in a cup.
